View Full Version : Thumbnailer programs?

07-22-2003, 09:53 PM
I'd like to make thumbnails of some pictures to post on the web, but none of the shareware programs I've come across so far are exactly what I'm looking for. Some don't let you specify the exact dimensions (e.g. 60x60 rather than simply 60 as the max height or width), some don't let you choose the file name (rather they automatically attach something like -thumb.jpg).

PICStation 1.3 is the closest I've found, but I can't get it to give me the exact suffix I want (it's doing picture.-sm.jpg instead of picture-sm.jpg like I want). I only have the demo and I don't want to pay for the full version if it's not going to do what I want.

Does anyone have any suggestions for programs that can fit my needs, and/or a way to fix the PICStation problem?

Any help would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks!

Graphic Converter (under Convert - > Catalog).

It goes far beyond specifying exact thumb sizes. You can generate either index images or thumbs with html (including navigation if you choose). It doesn't rename the files at all, rather it creates thumbs and images directories (you can customize their names). Certainly more organizable than putting everything in one overloaded directory.

You'll be amazed at what this program can do.

I'll second macinstud's recommendation.
